About the Designers:
Meet Max!Max has been mighty since he came into the world. Before he was born, he was diagnosed with severe congenital heart defects, so his family brought him straight to Boston Children’s Hospital. Young Max persevered through a series of lifesaving procedures—including surgery on his tiny, walnut-sized heart when he was just a few months old. Max continues to exceed expectation through his participation in the Cardiac Fitness program at Boston Children’s—spreading joy along the way. Today he’s a thriving teen with a powerful singing voice... Max is a bottle of sunshine, his positive energy is infectious. Inspired by his love of stage and screen, and ice cream, his Kinvara 11 design is sure to spread as much joy as he does.
Meet Jordynn!Jordynn marches to the beat of her own drum, despite her mom being told Jordynn would never walk or talk. At just 15 days old, Jordynn came to Boston Children’s Hospital and started down a path to recovery. Her rare genetic disorder has many secondary conditions, requiring care from over 10 specialists, nurses and therapists. Now eight years old, Jordynn has had 35 surgeries (and counting), and is frequently seen at Boston Children’s, sometimes twice a week. After a recent surgery, she had to relearn to walk—but that hasn’t stopped her. She embraces her uniqueness, saying, “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out!” Celebrating her originality and optimism, Jordynn incorporated unicorns, rainbows and patterns into her Kinvara 11 design inspiration.
Meet Eddie!At nine years old, Eddie developed a small limp that progressively got worse. Local doctors told him it was a common cyst behind his knee. Pretty soon, he couldn’t move his leg, so his parents brought him to Boston Children’s Hospital for answers; and doctors discovered Eddie had cancer. Now, fully in remission, Eddie runs circles around his friends on the basketball court and while dirt biking—passions that inspired his Kinvara 11’s.
